Hi, I am considering Uber from SJO airport to Jaco but we arrive at 11 pm! Do you think it would be possible to get Uber to make the trip to Jaco at this time of night or am I dreaming?

thanks

I also HIGHLY recommend Marco (see post #29). He's really responsive to email/text and incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about what to do/what not to do while visiting. The fact that he's from Jaco makes his advice about the area invaluable. We had to change our flight plans last minute and wound up landing a day earlier and at 10pm. He was there with a huge smile on his face to greet us. He's great and it was so much easier having him waiting for us vs. needing to get a taxing or Uber that late at night.

We just came back from our trip to Jaco, CR. We got the private service with Marco from San Jose to Jaco and back with his brother George. I found his info here, thanks to who ever started this thread! He was great, I recommend him entirely.

Some rent a car offer transportation from SJO airport to your destination.

This is the case of many small companies who provide a personnalized service.

Here is one of them:

I believe there is a bus also which you can get at the airport and it is super cheap.
